Full description

Visit the site of the first Winter Olympics. In Chamonix you’ll experience majestic scenery on a drive through the Arve Valley and from the 12,605-foot viewing platform on Europe’s highest mountain. This full-day tour begins in Geneva with a drive across the French border through the glacier-fed Arve Valley. At Chamonix, marvel at the splendid backdrop of the massive peaks of the Aiguilles Rouges. You’ll take the cable car up to Aiguille du Midi, which was the world’s highest cable car ride when it was launched in 1955. Enjoy breathtaking panoramas of this Alpine wonderland, with views into France, Switzerland, and Italy. Lunch will be at your leisure. You will also have the chance to ride the astonishing Montenvers rack railway to the Mer de Glace glacier. The journey on this electric train covers 3 miles of beautiful mountainous scenery before arriving at the longest glacier in France. You're free to spend the day as you please.

One of the best activities I've done. Such a busy day but it's really good. We had Neils as our guide and he was great! Very knowledge, funny and flexible with people. He accomodated for elderly people who needed a little more time. It's a fair bit of walking, so bear this in mind. The que for the glass box is ridiculous, so if you want a picture, head there first after you depart the cable car, otherwise you won't have enough time. I would highly recommend this tour! The views are incredible!!!

The view was amazing and everything was organized. It is was my first time to any mountain and it was the best. The only problem to me that the guide don’t walk you through the place because he has other tour to introduce the mountain to them. Though you ride up the cable car and come back on your own.

Brilliant day. The guide was very good and knowledgeable. Unfortunately due to the cloud the views at the top of the mountain were very limited and the cable car ride was stopped shortly after we descended. Again, due to the weather we were unable to see the ice caves which was a shame. The day however was very well organised and the views that we did see were amazing
